A few years ago I met a woman by the name of Joy Monroe via Facebook. Her sister Shawnee told her about me and she sent me a message to tell me she was inspired by my work; I am so inspired by her now too. Like me, she is an artist and a phenomenal one. We've chatted here and there over the last few years but it wasn't until 2015 that we really connected. 

I traveled to Atlanta in October, 2015 to attend Living Art America body art competition because competition is something that I've been entertaining for the last couple of years. Joy also planned to attend and encouraged me to sign up to be an assistant. I did end up assisting in the competition which you could read all about here

There are so many people who are not even familiar with the art form. Thanks to Living Art America and shows like Skin Wars, Naked Vegas and Face Off, body art is now an art form that is professionally viable and becoming more popular day by day.

Joy and I are both body artists in addition to many other things but body art is our love. It is the art form that holds the most passion because it houses human connection and emotions. Joy and I began talking about doing a body art show together earlier this year. Because of her passion and tenacity "Unframed" was born.

"Unframed" is a fine body art showcase featuring the body art of Joy Monroe and myself. The show is called unframed because it is an event where art is unrestricted. The human canvas is one that lives, breathes, walk, talks and performs. Joy and I will enhance these already beautiful canvas's by adding a story to their bodies through art. In addition to the art we have some really talented performers that will take the stage from award winning Hip Hop dancers to R&B singers, a dynamic hula hoop performance and of course live body painting. After the show the dance floor will be opened up so we can celebrate this inaugural event and all who have come to support us.

I can't even really express my gratitude and happiness for the love and support backing this show. The cast and crew of this production are working very hard to ensure that it's a fantastic show. From family and friends to total strangers, this show is going to be a testimonial to art, human connection, following your dreams and making them come true. I know that's a lot but I'm an artist and there is a lot more where that came from! We really hope to see you there in celebration with us of the many beautiful things to come for everyone involved including you.
